Realtors to help victims of terrorist attacks

The National Association of Realtors has established a relief fund to help families affected by the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington pay their mortgage or rental costs.

NAR opened the Realtors Housing Relief Fund with a $1 million donation and is urging Realtors nationwide to contribute, either directly to the NAR or through local and state associations.

An NAR spokesman said the association is still working on the criteria for who will be eligible for relief. To make a donation, call 800-874-6500; Realtors can find more information at www.onerealtorplace.com.
